The Best Things in Life are Free

Bloggie friends!!! The things I do for free cake..

I have a Costa Card - you earn points on it whenever you purchase from Costa. Collect enough points to pay for a free coffee - so about once a month I get free coffee!! Yay!

Today the good people at Costa sent me an email with the heading:

"Celebrate with a free cake" - all I needed to do was activate my Costa Card following a handy link.

Except of course a million and ten other people are trying to do the same thing and the website's crashed. Ahem.

Undeterred, I shall try tomorrow again. I want my free Costa Cake.

:-)

Charlie says: I think this is a shorter way to go next door..



One more day to the weekend! Yay!

Free goodies! Am in! I also love it when I get great discounts for being a regular customer or X reason ;)

Theresa Milstein said...

You deserve some Costa cake!

Will this be monthly or a one-time slice?

roxy said...

The lengths we go to for cake! It's totally worth it though. Charlie is an ingenious fellow with his clever escapes;)

Mr Puddy said...

Charlie, That's a cute short way : )

Lydia K said...

I hope you get your free cake to go with your free coffee.
Free stuff tastes good.

I tried to shope online at my kids' favorite clothing store around Thanksgiving weekend, and the system absolutely crawled. Luckily I'm an early riser, so I tried the next morning as soon as I woke up and had no problems at all. Good luck getting your cake!

Madeleine said...

LOL! I had that email too, but didn't read it so imagined i could just turn up with my costa card and get a free cake. I love getting free coffees with my card.

I think Charlie might be right! :O)

Kea said...

I had to Google "Costa + UK" to understand it's a coffee shop franchise/chain. Competition for Starbucks?

Mmm, free cake...I'd want my free cake too! LOL!

Smooches to sweet Charlie...hope you both have a wonderful day.

Lisa Potts said...

Keep trying! Free cake is definitely worth the trouble.

Your pictures of Charlie always brighten my day.

Marg said...

Well we sure hope you get that Costa Cake. Don't give up. Hope you have a fun day. Charlie, hope you found a short cut.

The best things in life are always free, but not always easy to obtain.

Hannah and Lucy said...

You can't let a free cake pass you by - mum loves a freebie even if she really knows she's already paid for it!!!
Is Charlie becoming a bit of a Houdini or a ladies man - he always seems to be sneaking out the door these days??

Brian said...

Grab that freebee fur sure...come back Charlie, it might be yummy!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Hope you get your free cake! And free coffee on the same day - bonus.

Summer Ross said...

Talli Roland said...

Woooo! I love cake! And I love free cake even more. :)

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Ok, Free Cake is AWESOME! If you can't get through on the link, go to their webpage, find a contact email and let them know - I did that with a free Dr. Pepper and they sent me a coupon since I couldn't get through. Of course, stupid me forgot to redeem it in time, but still, they sent it.

And Charlie that is a cute picture of you - we love your floofy tail!

Lynda Young said...

I hope you got your cake! :)
